All machine operating controls are located on a single, easy-to-operate touch screen except for the clamping cylinder control which is located above the turntable for the operators convenience and safety.
3) OIL RESERVOIR
A light oil mist system keeps all pneumatic lines, valves and cylinders properly lubricated.
4) HOLD DOWN FRAMES
To accommodate a different work piece range, hold down frames and templates may be changed in less than 3 minutes.

6) CLAMPING CYLINDER
Rough cut panel blanks are placed on the turntable and secured in place with the clamping cylinder. (Template is beneath the work piece.)
